Praised for its complexity, its velvety mouth-feel, its seductive power, and its electric energy
712 composed.

1990 was heralded as one of the great Veneto vintages of the late twentieth century, and upon release this Quintarelli Amarone Riserva was praised for its complexity, its velvety mouth-feel, its seductive power, and its electric energy. Now with almost thirty years of perfect maturity, this wine is stunning, unfurling myriad layers of flavors--juicy red and blue fruits, dried plums, Christmas cake, incense, tarry earth, warm leather, umami, black tea, and so many more. Rich and complex, this wine is nonetheless vibrant, shimmering across the palate to a lingering, resonant crescendo. This collector's wine is primarily from the indigenous Corvina along with Rondinella, Molinara, Negrara and traces of Cabernet, Sangiovese, and Nebbiolo, made in the painstaking appassimento method. This wine is a hedonist’s delight, a wine to be savored and meditated upon, and it’s a fitting tribute to one of the world’s greatest winemakers ever to have lived.
